“You talked to one of my lieutenants. He has, over the years, played the role repeatedly and with great conviction. More often than not, he’s done so to protect my identity. Other times, it was because I suspected a potential client might.. struggle with my gender. As if men had a monopoly on murder.”
YOU ARE INVITED
This week we’re having a birthday party for Arthur Conan Doyle before our usual Sherlockian Wednesday Watchalong.
Party activities may include:
- This-chat-doesn’t-even-have-sound birthday singalong
- Artie’s birthday suit game
- Disorganized and difficult trivia
- Whatever else we can fit into an hour
After the party, you’re welcome to stick around and watch Asylum Holmes with us. The movie’s official title is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, so it’s gotta be totally accurate to his vision and an excellent way to celebrate his work, right? (Just… ignore the steampunk dragon thing.)
In an effort to provide abused children with a safe way to reach out for help, a Spanish organization called the Aid to Children and Adolescents at Risk Foundation, or ANAR for short, created an ad that displays a different message for adults and children at the same time.
